Unfortunately, Razer isn’t giving away much in terms of specs. The smartphone market has hit near-parity, in that it is getting harder to determine which flagship is truly better, but at the same time, we’re finally seeing some solid competitors to Apple and Samsung pop up. Lastly, the phone will arrive with Android 7.1.1 Nougat. For the uninitiated, Razer is more of a familiar name in the world of gaming PCs; with many, a high-end power packed computers to its name. Back in July, Bloomberg reported that the company was working on a “mobile device tailored for its consumer base of hardcore gamers”, citing sources. However, with Nextbit under its wing, Razer could end up making something quite unique.
Razer has had their eye on the smartphone market for a few years. It could very well be a tablet/phone/gaming device hybrid, which would make Razer a direct competitor of the Nintendo Switch. Earlier this month, Nextbit founder Tom Moss tweeted a picture where a mobile device with a Razer logo is poking out of Min-Liang Tan’s pocket.
One interesting feature of the phone will be that it will be coming with 8GB of RAM.
What do you think a Razer phone brings to the table? No other details are available at this point, but the phone is said to be targeting the gaming crowd with special features for them. As it suggests, Razer will introduce its new smartphone with an event organized on November 1st.
Razer is set to unveil its first phone on November 1. Razer just shared a teaser on Twitter, telling the fans to watch out for their biggest unveiling yet. Expect to pay $800 if not more for the Razer Phone.
Earlier today, PhoneRadar came across a GFXBench listing referencing a “Razer Phone” that’s nearly certainly what we’ll be seeing next month. To start with, it features a 5.7-inch display with a screen resolution of 2,560×1,440 and an aspect ratio of 16:9.
According to the rumored Razer Phone specifications, the device will be powered by the SnapDragon 835 which is based on the 10-nanometer design and is 35% smaller and uses 25% less power as compared to previous designs.
